Having problems with a malware I had to reinstall Win7 OS with recovery mgr.After I had to reinstall all my web development tools such as Visual Basic Express 2008, Visual Web Developer Express 2010, SQL server express 2008, MySql, Workbench.I cannot reinstall PHP and PhpMyAdmin no matter what I try. I have done all the tutorials,most of them are old anyway, also I don't want Apache, I am happy with Mysql.I tried also with Web Platform installer, I get an error.Should I reinstall Windows and start fresh? In this case which of the above programs should I install first? Should I start with PHP? I appreciate any help you can give me thanks
My pc is a Compaq Notebook running Win7 Home Premium and IIS 7.5.

Any reason why you don't want to use Apache? It's the 'usual' server - especially for php hosted sites.
I don't want Apache, I am happy with Mysql.
What does this mean? MySQL has installed correctly?

I think you're confused with a webserver (Apache) and mysql.
Prpbably the easiest way to get started is to use a stack like XAMPP.
I just reinstalled XAMPP the other day to upgrade PHP to 5.5 - no problems.
